Hi Achim and Jon:

Several minites ago I've tried run 1.3.4-1. (Previously, I expected getting and using a test version to be much harder than it actually turned out to be.) And, voilà, starting XWin from the shortcut succeeded. Also starting from mintty and cmd. Said that:
- huge,
- tremendous,
- enourmous, 
- exorbitant
to you both, for finding a bug and correcting it.

Best regards,
